Spring Awakening

My concept for Spring Awakening was heavily based around the omnipresent force of Christianity as well as how in the dark the children are about true adult life. Much of the set is a massive wall which appears incredibly burnt, reinforcing the idea that there is something secret on the other side. The wall evolves over the show, such as segments being removed and serving as trees for forest scenes. In addition, there is a religious-alter like platform center stage where Melchior and Wendla initiate their sac-religious relationship, further demonstrating their rebellion against the world around them.
